I love these. I wish I had letters like this from my mother. :)


Just last night my 22 yo daughter, after seeing her 13 yo brother acting 13, apologized to me. My older daughter has done so as well, although I think at 26 she is now going through a stage of believing we should have raised her differently in some way, and she is just angry with her father for being the person he is. That may not resolve unless she has a kid of her own and realizes how hard choices are and maybe even why we made the ones we did.


I love these. Can I bottle them up, or maybe just tattoo some of them on my kids' foreheads?

About Me

  • Carmen Staicer is a whirlwind of energy and execution, who never sleeps and drinks way too much coffee. She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for SheKnows, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
